I am a professor at UNIFAL (Universidade Federal de Alfenas). I actually am the coordinator of a theater group which uses chemistry as a way to teach and encourage young’s to appreciate chemistry courses. We have 15 students doing a theater which will teach the bond principles using human personages as elements. Among our activities for 2011, we will help teacher from developing schools to assemblies a laboratory using recycles or disposables materials.
